Kareem Hunt Victim Goes Silent After Demanding Charges

The Kansas City Chiefs released Kareem Hunt after video was released that appeared to show him kicking a woman.

The woman Kareem Hunt slammed down and kicked was initially gung-ho to press charges against the then-NFL superstar, but she's since gone silent.

"The NFL's investigation, which began immediately following the incident in February, will include a review of the new information that was made public today", the NFL said in a statement.

Hunt was preparing to play Oakland this week when TMZ Sports posted the grainy, graphic security video Friday. The Chiefs cut him in the wake of the video, stating Hunt had lied to the team about the events that transpired, and Hunt has been placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List. Rice told NFL.com that he would've urged Hunt to consider whether it was "worth risking it all for a split-second decision - for something you know you can get out of", but acknowledged that Hunt might not have been "in his right mind" when he lashed out.

"I just wanted to let the world know how sorry I am for my actions", Hunt said. I'm not the type of person to ever even think about putting my hands on anyone.

National Football League all-star running back Kareem Hunt was immediately terminated by the Kansas City Chiefs after hotel surveillance video clearly showed him forcefully pushing and kicking a woman in OH back in February. That feels bad, too, because it sounds like Hunt did not feel the need to get help after it happened but may be doing so now, after the release of the video. Hunt, 23, played in each of Kansas City's first 11 games and entered Sunday's contests with the fifth-most rushing yards in the league. Teams continue to draft players who have a history of domestic violence - sometimes even players who have been seen on camera committing violence similar to Hunt and Rice. "Because he has a long life to live, this will be a defining moment, but it shouldn't be the moment that defines you". "I know it's going to be hard".

The video footage that sparked the chain of the events captured Hunt arguing with the woman at 3.22 AM on February 10, 2018 outside Hunt's hotel apartment at Cleveland's Metropolitan at the 9. It shows Hunt pushing a woman. Due to his release from the Chiefs roster he is now listed on the league waivers and if, as expected, he goes unclaimed by a team by the deadline on Monday he will then become an unrestricted free agent. In a statement, Hunt apologized for his actions, saying, "I deeply regret what I did". That isn't condoning Hunt's actions, it is just you have to speak on the severity of the incidents.

The dispute occurred after the accuser and her friend were asked to leave the apartment but remained in the hallway outside, making noise and banging on the apartment door, the reports say.

"There was definitely some things that were said and did that I did not like, and that's not an excuse", Hunt said.
